84% of higher ed leaders agree consistency of advice around financial aid can be a challenge when students are receiving advice from financial aid staff, external call centers, and websites that may be out of date.

Overcoming Financial Aid Challenges

As federal and state regulations continue to change, the financial aid process has grown increasingly complex for prospective students and their families. Financial aid offices must ensure compliance while providing a diverse, often remote body of applicants with relevant, up-to-date information when and where they need it.

Enhance student experience with personalized support and streamlined communication

Ocelot helps financial aid offices increase enrollment and meet institutional goals by delivering compliant, personalized AI communication designed to assist more students with the application process and remove frustrating barriers to accessing aid.

Provide personalized, proactive assistance to applicants

Reach out to students regarding upcoming financial aid deadlines and follow up to offer direction and support during critical phases of the application process.

Increase accessibility to a diverse applicant pool

Ensure students from a broad range of backgrounds can easily access financial aid information, 24/7 and from any device, while providing high-touch human help when they need it most.

Better understand the barriers to student success

Analyze data and trends from multichannel conversations to uncover where confusions and obstacles in the process exist, and use the information to optimize student experience when it comes to financial aid..
“[Ocelot] is a better way to connect to our students. We don’t lose them in the pipeline.”
